William Jefferson came to Colorado as a very late addition to the 2009 recruiting class last summer just a few days before training camp began. He made the most of his opportunities on the practice fields and in the film room, and it paid off in playing time as a true freshman.
Jefferson played in 11 games and caught six passes for 45 yards and might be hard to keep off the field next fall is he continues to play with passion and knack for making plays he has shown so far in spring ball.
"He's looked real good," quarterback Tyler Hansen said. "He's got a little swagger to him. He's starting to talk more. He's starting to run better routes. He just looks a lot more confident."
